stick. >> what about spending cuts? >> we've heard so much about it during the presidential election and now that the president has been gnawiinaugurd for the second term. how much leverage do the republicans have. and the president didn't touch on either of those thing in his inaugural address. >> he made clear in his inaugural address he was not, the cuts in medicare and social security, and newest entitlement, middle class health insurance entitlement. he made it clear he doesn't want to do that and that's where the republicans want to go, because those are, and this is agreed and the president use today point this out the biggest drivers of deficits and debt. he's drawing a line he's not going to go there. republicans will be-hard pressed to go there, but at least in their point of view, hold on the line of spending and not go up as much as it was supposed to. >> and chris, you mentioned this only lasts until may 18th. is that what we can expect now days from our lawmakers, forever of the kicking of the can down the field and do we only-- the best we can hope for is a three-month
from a fierce election-year showdown between the president and congressional republicans when president obama bypassed them with a series of recess appointments. it included -- it involved, i should say, three vacancies on the national labor relations board. that's the board that adjudicate disputes between the companies and the union. when a pro democratic, tend to stack it with pro labor guys and the president gets to do that. however, they require senate approval and president obama couldn't get senate approval for the guys he wanted to put on the nlrb. what did he do? he waited until he believed the senate was in recess and then he stacked the board. well, the senate came back and said, we weren't in recess and fine to do recess appointments, but we weren't in recess and you violated the constitution and now, a federal appeals court has just agreed with the president-- i should say with the republicans. now, the president claimed that he acted properly. he said the senate was away for the holidays, but this federal court did not agree. now, the ruling could also throw into question
on that board. first, the nlrb decided there could be ambush elections and give the employer three weeks, everybody, we're done. in and out. >> megyn: no chance for the employer, a meaningful chance for them to influence the employees the other way. >> you know, and you think of it, the question here is not about the fairness or the sense of that ruling, but the fact that the only thing that would stop it is the judgment by this appellate court, the d.c. court of appeals saying that this is unconstitutional. >> megyn: that's gone. >> period. forcing employees, employers in all industries to bargain with so-called microunions. >> megyn: so if you don't have enough to get a full union in a shop. you could have sort of microunion of the front desk clerks? >> instead of united auto workers, you could have the international hubcap workers on the assembly plant, microunion. it goes on. i mean, this-- these are the rulings of these folks. >> megyn: even a couple that jumped at at me, limited employees rights not to fund political activities. this would be like paying off your car and then being
were in the middle of at presidential election. >> and megyn, i think as secretary clinton said this has been settled. and senator johnson as john kerry pointed out today didn't know what happened he skipped the intelligence briefing that would have actually given him the answers that he was looking for yesterday. >> megyn: all right, give you the quick final word, mark. >> sure, i used to write these statements at the white house and what you say is, look, we don't know exactly what happened, there are some reports that say it was a protest and other reports is a that say otherwise, here is what we know right now and as we get more details we'll tell you if they had stuck to that basic principle they wouldn't have trouble. they wanted to believe the spin that al-qaeda was decimated, they're not decimated. >> megyn: sadly. thank you so much. >> thank you. >> megyn: up next, serious questions about privacy and the secretary amendment as one lawmaker proposes a plan that would require parents to tell schools if they own a gun and would punish them if they don't. it's coming up in
, in the 2014 mid terms? >> this is a line preceding the election that that's what he was doing through the whole fiscal cliff debate and i really don't think that during that debate, that's what he was doing, i think it was just sort of gravy for him, that he was destroying them and i think that the republicans, frankly, are doing a really good job of destroying themselves and obama doesn't have to do much. but now looking forward, i think he probably has figured out that it's in his interest to divide them as much as he can. and i don't think there's anything that's unusual for among politicians and you have people like, you know, cbs' political director writing that's what he should do. i don't think it's exactly a re. >> megyn: what is wrong-- two questions for you, monica, what is wrong with the tea party in the house maintaining their ideological stripes and digging in their heels and saying, no, we're not going to compromise, our constituents don't want us to compromise so-- and what is wrong with the president's response, fine, i'm going to try and divide and conquer you and hav
